With the announcement of famed and legendary basketball play-by-play man Marv Albert retiring at the end of the NBA playoffs, it got me thinking. Who are the best sports commentators of all time? There were so many to choose from in so many sports, but after several hours of thinking and classic game watching, I came up with my personal list of the top five sportscasters of all time! So here we go!
5) PAT SUMMERALL & JOHN MADDEN
If you’ve watched a Super Bowl, matinee game on FOX, or even played Madden 92-2002, you’ve heard these two legendary sportscasters. There is no denying the mark they left on the sports world and sports games in general. The pair have also called multiple Super Bowls together and made some legendary calls. Sadly, Pat Summerall died at the age of 82 in 2013, but the lasting impression he left on football is and always will be remembered.
